Default 2014, the draft of all drafts.

-MOTHER-THREAD-
2014 draft is quite possibly the best draft of all time, with high school talent all across the board and some of the top end talent such as Marcus Smart who have chosen to stick around for another year.

Over the next 30 days I will be previewing each player in declining order to give each member something to read when the forum goes quiet in the off season and something to get excited about.

So here we go!

Check out each preview as I go along

DISCUSS AS MUCH AS YOU WANT!

as much as I do appreciate what youre planning on doing, we will probably be in the playoffs next year, and depending on this off season, quite possibly getting past a round. I dont think our pick will be that great just because we will be picking so high up

ask yourself why you thought it was necessary for you to come into this thread and tell quinn that you appreciate his efforts, but essentially not to waste his time talking about prospects in the muthafuckin NBA draft forum.

i don't jog pizzaboy. shit like this is why people contribute less.

I never told him to not waste his time. It's almost like you start out reading my posts thinking they'll be negative. I just responded to the fact that that draft won't be as exciting as the past couple have drafts have been because it seems like we're out of the rebuild. Nothing more to the post

If it's a great draft, then we could still land a nice player out of the lottery. And maybe we'll get a lotto pick in a Bargnani trade.

Nice stuff Quinn.

I'm still in Australia at the moment for family reasons but I'm playing in the national comp. Just mentioning this is the comp that Dante Exum plays in aswell.

We unfortunately lost on friday night 87-93 but I still played okay apart from my 3 ball.

going for 22pts, 11rbs, 3 ast on 9/18 1/4 from 3 and 3/4 from the line.


IMO
This draft is good enough that we can manage to pull out a great player in the 10-20 range, that is why I'm doing all players at this stage... it will also help create some conversation as mentioned before.

Have fun guys

Should be a great draft. Even guys expected to go in the lottery this year, like Marcus Smart (likely would have been the 1st PG taken) and James McAdoo are returning. I see Wiggins and Parker as absolute locks in the top 2 (both likely franchise players), but you may have 2-3 future All-Stars elsewhere in the lottery. Guys like Julius Randle, Wayne Seldon, Noah Vonleh, James Young, the Harrison twins, etc.

thank you for jynxing the next season. Now we're going to end up last in the league next year and end up with Wiggins.

The class is deep. Again, yeah, I might be a homer of some sorts here, but I'm really looking forward to Mario Hezonja. He's got so much Petrovic in his game that if he matures a bit he could easily be one of the best 2 guards in the league.
